It is said to have a 21kWh battery, but an unknown Usable capacity value.
I started with 16.1 kWh usable at 52,000 miles in Jan 2017, and after a steady decline over the years, I am now at 12.8 kWh at 76,000 miles
• If the Nominal Usable capacity is 18.5kWh, I have lost 31%
• If the Nominal Usable capacity is 20kWh, I have lost 36%
If I don’t cross the 35% using the 18.5kWh usable assumption, I wonder if it would be worth paying for an evaluation at the dealer.
Has anyone asked their dealership too verify the usable battery capacity of their spark against the warranty threshold?
If so what did they charge for it, and what kind of reported data did they provide?

I have the same questions as above for my 2016 with 22.5k miles.
Guess-O-Meter typically shows about 55 miles at 100%, when I haven't been using the heat or AC much. 11.4kWh calculated thus far.
Currently running the battery down to near zero see if I get any recovery; hopefully I'll make it home. It has sat at 100% basically continuously for 14 months.
